Declaration: It's Julie Christie's Birthday Celebration Week

julie turns 69 on wednesday. where does the time go? yet since she burst onto the international scene in 1965 with 'darling' and 'doctor zhivago' she has remained a force, if even an often illusive force, in film.

is it really 45 years ago julie christie broke out internationally with these two films? i've loved a lot of actresses for many years. julie has always been and still remains the one i've stuck with the longest. (audrey hepburn may have been the longest but the loverly one passed too soon and too young). julie is consistent. even when she goes into her 'semi retirements' she remains intriguing. she comes then goes leaving me to always want more. and more she will return to give. whether in a supporting role ('finding neverland'), an academy award worthy role ('away from her') or turning in the best work in an ensemble piece ('new york, i love you').

she is ever loverly. she has chosen to age with grace. after a few years of 'going hollywood' she walked away. she took on social causes adding to my love for her. and she continues to act on her terms. she has nothing to prove. julie has proven. everyday is a day to celebrate julie christie. this week sees has us celebrating her sixty-ninth birthday. she is still younger than springtime and a 'darling' of the screen.

so for the next week or so i am celebrating her birthday and career and ask you to join me. not that i need an excuse to celebrate julie.

a video i made awhile ago celebrating julie

'julie christie she makes me go misty'
